Forespar Pole Storage Brackets

The most common storage method is on the deck along the base of the life-line.   This gets the poles weight down as low as possible and also gives you additional foot-hold when healing significantly.  It is also the most secure of the options.

Poles up to 3-1/2" diameter can be stored in stanchion chocks mounted to your life line stanchions, thus eliminating deck chocks and the need to drill holes in the deck. This method offers a great way of keeping the decks clear but is not recommended for the offshore sailor as the added weight and surface area to the stanchions can pose a problem in heavy seas.

Storing poles vertically up the mast has become very popular in recent years as the pole is always attached to the mast and ready to set.  It also eliminates some pole handling, an important consideration with the larger poles.  Forespar has developed mast cars and storage cars to facilitate this option effectively. 

To set up a vertically stored pole you need the following hardware:

  • An appropriate length of T-track up the forward center face of the mast.

  • A proper mast car to match the pole's inboard end fitting.

  • An up-haul/downhaul mast car control system.

  • A vertical storage mast car of the appropriate diameter for the pole.

  • A chock located near the base of the mast that captures the outboard end of the stored pole.
